A larger-than-ever-before group of political and financial celebrities will petition the United Nations this week to refocus the globe-spanning war on drugs from “criminal justice towards a public health approach,” reports the Guardian:

Those backing the call include Ernesto Zedillo, former president of Mexico; George Papandreou, former prime minister of Greece; César Gaviria, former president of Colombia; Kofi Annan, former UN secretary general; Fernando Henrique Cardoso, former president of Brazil; George Shultz, former US secretary of state; Javier Solana, former EU high representative; Virgin tycoon Richard Branson; and Paul Volcker, former chairman of the US Federal Reserve.

The global advocacy organisation Avaaz, which has nine million members, will present a petition in support of the commission’s recommendations to UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon.

 

Comment by Adamantine;

If the organization has the words global,international, United Nations, or an approximation thereof  then Javier Solana is on board.
